Claimant's Guide

The Claimant's Guide is for people who are claiming refugee protection under Canada's new refugee determination system, which came into effect on December 15, 2012. It provides basic information about:

  • How decisions are made about refugee protection in Canada;
  • What the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) does; and
  • What you need to do.
